In this rare moment, watch as a deadly eastern brown snake devours a carpet python. The eastern brown snake is one of the the worlds`s most venomous snakes. They are effective hunters, utilizing both venom and constriction. With a typical diet of small rodents and birds, ingesting another snake this large is not a common meal.
